a meeting with john mccain, instagram, and kelly ayotte, all republicans who have been the chief skeptics about her potential nomination as secretary of state, almost entirely based on what they see as withholding or a distortion of information about the attack in benghazi on september 11 that cost the lives of the u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. -- john mccain, lindsey graham, and kelly ayotte. it is a meeting to try to appease your critics. after she came out of the meeting, it appeared to their opposition to them had increased. if the president intends to nominate susan rice as a successor to hillary clinton as secretary of state -- and most indications from the white house are that the president wants to go ahead with it -- it will be an interesting standoff. host: let's hear what kelly ayotte had to say, republican of new hampshire. they met with the secretary.

. senators john mccain, lindsey graham and kelly ayotte say they're even more troubled now after meeting with ambassador rice. the attack on libya on september 11 killed the u.s. ambassador, cries stevens and three other americans. five days later, ambassador rice went on the sunday talk shows and said u.s. officials believed it was a spontaneous reaction to protest over an anti-islam video. not a preplanned terrorist attack. first the controversy was over whether the white house made the change in the talking points. but that's past because intelligence officials say they gave ambassador rice those talking points. today senator graham called the information disconnected from reality. >> not only is the information bad and i'm more convinced than ever that it was bad, it was unjustified to give the scenario as presented by ambassador rice and president obama three weeks before an election. >> shepard: rice said while we wish we had had perfect information, just days after the terrorist attack, as is often the case, the intelligence assessment has evolved. neither i nor anyone else in the

were with us yesterday you'll remember that her bid to set the record straight with senators john mccain and lindsay graham and kelly ayotte could hardly have gone worse. they were more inflamed about rice's early public comments about the benghazi, libya attack than they had been before that meeting. cnn's dana bash has been watching all of this prenomination confrontation drama and joins us now to talk about this. i know you're trying to wrangle an interview and make sure you catch the senators as they emerge from the meetings. dana, it might sound to some as though some of the critics of ambassador rice feel differently about what they're criticizing. they don't all seem to be in lock step or at least have the same complaints. >> reporter: that's true. no question that there are different levels of issues that senators are upset about. i have to tell you the reason i'm on the phone now is because i'm waiting for a very important meeting that susan rice is having as we speak to wrap up and that is with senator susan collins. why is it important? because if she is nominated to be secret

state, voted against it. lindsey graham cast a no vote though john mccain was one of the treaty's biggest advocates. kelly ayotte voted for it. mississippi senator thad cochrane voted in favor and then as it was going down switched his vote to no. cochrane up in 2014. mississippi more worried about a primary than a general. this is one of of the saddest days i've seen in almost 28 years in the senate. and it needs to be a wake-up call about a broken institution that's letting down the american people. the g 0 op divide was on full display yesterday in both chambers. so was the republican attempt to move past the losses in 2012. there was a tribute to honor the late jack kemp. two men who had their eye on 2016. congressman paul ryan and marco rubio laid out their visions for expanding the appeal to the middle class. clear from the outset that the night was about moving past mitt romney. ryan welcomed rubio to the dinner, by the way, by joking about potential early state r run-ins the two of them may have ahead of them. >> i'll see you at the reunion can dinner for two. notice any

for not satisfying with her answers concerning the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. senators john mccain, lindsey graham, kelly ayotte say they are more troubled now than before they had that meeting and all indications are they are still against the president's nominating rice for secretary of state. >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn't get. bottom line, i'm more disturbed now than i was before. >> apparently she misled the american public. i think that she would say that. she'd have to say that. >> cnn foreign affairs reporter elise labott is live in washington. really nice to see you elise. why are rice's critics saying they are more concerned now? >> well, zoraida, they're concerned because it turns out that there was some information in classified settings that ambassador rice told the senators about that did indicate that al qaeda possibly was involved, that this could be a terrorist attack. and when she sat down with those senators yesterday, what she said was that there were unclassified talking points provided by the cia tha

ridiculed hillary clinton's foreign policy experience and called john mccain reckless and confused. if the president does nominate her, those who know susan rice well say she's more than up for the fight, and although it would be a bruising confirmation battle, she almost certainly would have the votes to be confirmed. jonathan karl, abc news, washington. >>> interesting parallel that story points out between condoleezza, confirmation process, and this one. "the washington post," interesting profile, i like the human nuggets they find. as u.n. ambassador she gained a reputation for sharp intellect. and sharp elbows. she is not known for diplomatic finesse, known for being aggressive sometimes too aggressive and using salty language on occasion. in private she has a good sense of humor. trying to dig up some humanity on her as well, but clearly she's a bulldog behind closed doors. >> they wouldn't indicate whether or not they would block the nomination if it gets to the point. the president has not nominated her to this point, we just want to make that clear. but some of the beef th

to be the next secretary of state replacing hillary clinton. a little exchange between john mccain and john kerry earlier today. watch this. >> senator mccain? >> thank you very much, mr. secretary. >> i think thank you very much, mr. president. this is what happens when you get two losers up here. we're just having fun. >> so here's the serious question, though, i'll start, james, with you, once again. who do you think would be a better secretary of state? would it be john kerry, the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee, or susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations? >> i honestly have no idea. i would say john kerry because i know senator kerry. i don't know if i've met ambassador rice before. but to be honest with you, both of them are imminently qualified people. i can't imagine either one of them would do anything other than a spectacular job. but i'm a political guy, not a foreign policy guy. i'm just unable to really render a very knowledgeable -- >> let me rephrase the question. politically speaking, who would the president be better off nominating? >> politically

. >> there are numerous republicans, john mccain, lindsey graham, a barraso who sates i would support john kerry as secretary of state who in their words would cruise through a nomination. and how would an affect if those two are in place? >> if you like what's in the last four years, you're going to get more of the same. deep defense cuts. if you had john kerry as secretary of defense. what we need is a strong secretary of defense, in spite of drawdowns and budget cuts is going to project strength. john kerry is not going to do that. he was against the gulf war, he was for the iraq war before he was against it, and he wanted to withdraw from afghanistan sooner than 2013. along those lines he's got a track record that sort of diminishes defense capability as opposed to building it up. we can't afford that. >> who would you like to see on this? >> i'm not in a position to make that kind of nomination. drastically different perspective than these two, and another piece on these they're differential to international institutions, u.n., criminal courts, that i think that diminishes american democrac

by orrin hatch, john mccain supported it. then we moved in the direction. i agree absolutely with brad, immigrants were being demonized and vilified. we moved from where it was aspirational, i'm a first generation american. people started talking about first general americans at anchor babies. we moved from a place where you were looking at a aspiring citizens to calling them illegal aliens. we have to move back from that and thank goodness. thank goodness president bush is taking the lead on this. martha: there needs to be a debate this country over what the role should be in terms of what the hopes and dreams are for all americans. and i want to just play this piece last night. there was a big dinner. paul ryan was there and marco rubio was there in honor of jack kemp. i want to play a little bit of this from marco rubio, senator from florida. >> our story is not rare in america. but it is rare in the world. had we been born almost anywhere else at any other time in history our lives would have been very different. i probably would have been a very opinionated bartender for example.

talks yesterday, republican senators, including john mccain, say they are even more troubled, now, about rice's responses. >>> and after the repeal of the don't ask/don't tell ban on gays in the military, four women are challenging the ban on women in combat. their lawsuit claims the 1994 rule keeping them out of ground combat also unfairly blocks them from promotion. it comes as officers are on aer is survey, asking if women would be a distraction in combat operations. >>> and police in new york, say a bus driver apparently lost control before slamming into the house you see here. the bus drove into a front bedroom, killing a young boy who was sleeping. another child in the room at the same time is expected to be okay. >>> and the odds, some 1 in 175 million. but it is the only thing people are talk about, tonight's powerball jackpot. now stands at $500 million. with a "b." the most ever, for the multistate lottery. it could go even higher. 60% of powerball tickets are sold on the day of the jackpot. you figure, maybe we're talking about $600 million by day's end. >>> and finally, if yo

that mitt romney won every group of voters making over $50,000 a year and that he did better than john mccain among white voters. but didn't you under estimate the size of the minority vote? 2004 in the bush campaign where there was a sharp divide between those who thought did a lobe they were able to turn out those that thought that the president had done a successful job. i think that they spoke, their messaging spoke to them, and i think that the images of the president in the storm were very helpful to them. it reminded them of what they liked about the president. they were successful at it. >> stuart, let me get in one point here. so, if you had this election to do over, even though george bush would say i don't do do-overs -- if you had the election to do over, what is the one mistake that you as adviser to the candidate and the candidate made in this election? what might have made prromney president? >> it's a great question, a tough question. we talked about it a lot. i think we should have done a better job reaching out to women voters. the governor has a great record on women's issu
